I met Randy Newman at the airport and he was shorter than me. Im 5’8. He’s listed as 6’0, no way. Love the guy.

I wish he was shorter so I could listen to his song 'Short People' and say "Physician Heal Thyself" to all my friends!

Thinking of a contemporary who recorded an album comprised entirely of Randy's songs, Harry Nilsson looked like a pretty tall guy. Near Newman and John Lennon, Nilsson could look maybe a strong 6'1", maybe pushing 6'1.5".

Here maybe slight pavement disadvantage with Ringo Starr, Elton John & Paul & Linda McCartney:

Might be worthy of a page due his several big songs.

Good addition, hard to say he was always a sloucher and can look barely 5'9" in the last decade (i.e. well edged by Neil Diamond). Maybe he once stood a strong 5'11" it's hard say. Short People was always meant to be a cheeky novelty song but he was bold to write it never having been six feet or over.

All joking aside, this guy probably should've been the *first* celeb to have had a listing on this site!
Grew up with the ingenious Will Sasso(a genuinely tall fellow) impression skits on MadTV. :D

Short people are just the same as you and I(oh, such lies!). All men are brothers until the day they day(it's a wonderful world).

Oh, so it was him was it? He was the one who sang, "You have to pick them up just to say 'hello'!"

Yes, I remember it well, and never thought it was aimed at someone of my grand height! It was a funny little song, but I didn't buy it; I was already into hard rock by then!

Randy gets 5ft11 peak and 5ft9 for today's height.
